SCBA is a group of autonomous (self-governing) congregations, cooperating together as Southern Baptist Churches here in South Central Pennsylvania. Our 28 churches and 38 pastors serve Berks, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Northumberland and Schuykill counties. On any given weekend you will find us meeting in traditional buildings, store fronts, and in a variety of locations. You will hear a variety of languages and experience every style of worship.
Our purpose is to help strengthen churches, assist in starting new churches and cooperate with others to grow the Kingdom of God.
Our vision is to...
Equip churches to fulfill their God-given purpose,
Engage churches in starting healthy church plants,
Encourage churches through regular times of fellowship, and
Enable churches to cooperate in missions and ministry throughout the world.
If I can personally assist you in anyway please contact me. Thanks for visiting!
The Rev. Ben Scott, Ph.D.
All SCBA churches are invited to a "Fifth Sunday Sing" to be held at Emmanuel Baptist Church, Elizabethtown, on Sunday, October 30, 2016, 5:00pm. Food and fellowship after the sing, and churches should bring a snack or dessert item to share. See the EBC website for more information at ebc-etown.org
SCBA pastors and wife are invited to a special Christmas fellowship dinner to be at Hoss's Steak and Seafood Restaurant, Elizabethtown, on Friday, December 2nd, 2016; 6:00-8:00pm. A complimentary all-you-can-eat dinner buffet will be available, and we'll share testimonies of God's goodness to us throughout the year. We'll enjoy a special presentation of the Christmas story, sing carols, and enjoy a time of fellowship. No need to bring a gift, but it would help if you notify Dr. Ben that you and your wife will be attending.
